Mrs. Courtney Speciale
Hello! My name is Courtney Speciale. I am so excited about a brand new school year! I was born into a family of educators who instilled the same passion and love for teaching in my heart at an early age. By the time I was in 3rd grade, I knew that I wanted to be a 3rd grade teacher. I am thankful to live my dream every day. This is my eleventh year teaching at East Elementary. I taught 5th grade my first year at East and I have been in 3rd grade for the past 9 years! I graduated from Holly Pond High School in 2005, Wallace State in 2006, and Athens State (B.S. Elementary Education) in 2008. I went on to graduate from the University of West Alabama with a Masters Degree in Elementary Education and an Education Specialist Degree in Elementary Education. I married my husband, Steve, in 2013 and we have two little ladies! Our oldest is 3 and our baby is 9 months old! Becoming a mother has been my greatest joy and accomplishment thus far and in return has made me love my job and students more than ever. I look forward to a very "Speciale" year teaching and loving your child!
